Jenny Saville + Rembrandt

Here’s a review of the J. S. Show at the Modern I in Edinburgh. It captures what I found to be the sensibility of the contemporary group show I saw there. Saville is new for me - I was stunned. When her figures became  too disturbing to look at (happened quite soon), I would begin examining her marks in paint and charcoal Instead. They were disturbing too. I couldn’t get away from these monumentally scaled, nude women. Their very flesh, so malleable and yet so solid, were hard to remain with but so compelling I had to stay. Her work will stay w me a long time.


i also saw an amazing Rembrandt show the same day. I was especially swept into his ink drawings. I’m inviting him into my studio and drawing immediately. I’m just on my phone so will post more notes later. 



Tuesday: Kelvingrove Art Museum and Gallery in Glasgow. Loved it - focused on Scottish art and artists, and it was a great intro. I only have my phone, and dang it! Cannot figure out how to get a photo in here! Hopefully there will be photos soon!
